Vikings are well known to be ferocious in their attempts at looting villages, rampaging through townships and so on, but have you ever seen a Viking go berserk? Well with Yggdrasil Gaming we can take you right into the heart of Vikingdom for one such adventure. You may have thought they were wild before, but now they have ramped it up a level or ten. Beware all who enter the realm of Vikings Go Berzerk, as they battle against the Sirens.
Vikings Go Berzerk is a 5-reel, 25 fixed pay line slot that offers an RTP of 96.10%, we think even Valhalla would approve of that! In the background there is a very atmospheric tune pounding away, giving an overall feel that something big is about to happen. We welcome to the reels four Viking characters which each make up the higher value symbols. Lower values are depicted by four coloured coins which make an interesting change. Set on what can only be described as a Viking long ship, you will notice the pair of Sirens on each side of the ship. They are the enemy of the Vikings and only by going berzerk can they be beaten. The slot itself has more to offer by way of features than it does in fancy graphics, so let’s get started, shall we?
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 25p per spin and can be increased up to the maximum of £125 per spin. It is nice and easy to amend your bet on Vikings Go Berzerk, simply by changing the coin value to the left of the spin button.
Wild Symbol – A golden shield is the wild symbol in Vikings Go Berzerk. It will substitute for all other symbols in the game except the scatter.
Scatter Symbol – The scatter symbol is depicted by a female Viking with the word’s free spins in front of her. Landing 3 or more of these symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the bonus spins round for you.
Treasure Chest Feature – Happening at random throughout the base and bonus games, you will notice either wooden or golden chests landing on reels 4 or 5. These chests will open to reveal a plethora of prizes ranging from bonus spins to multipliers. The prizes will be revealed, then covered up and shuffled about and you get to pick one, so choose wisely.
Bonus Spins Feature – Having landed three or more scatter symbols will take you into the bonus spins game. The aim of this feature is to fight off the siren that is attacking the Viking ship. Here you will be allocated your spins determined on the number of scatters you have on screen:
- 3 scatter symbols will award 7 bonus spins and a special bonus,
- 4 scatter symbols will award 14 bonus spins and a special bonus,
- 5 scatter symbols will award 21 bonus spins and a free bonus.
After your spins have been allocated you will also be given 1 of the following 5 bonuses to have in play during the round.
- Berzerk mode – all Vikings are berzerk and can win against the siren each time,
- Sticky Wilds – 1 sticky wild is placed at random on the reels and will remain there for the rest of the spins,
- Sticky Wild Reel – one reel will be turned into a sticky reel at random,
- Bonus Spins – will be awarded between 1 and 3 extra spins on top of your original allocation,
- Extra Chests – 5 treasure chests and golden chests are added to the reels.
If that wasn’t enough, the bonus spins can also be retriggered from within this round. This means there is huge win potential from the bonus spins.
Vikings Rage Feature – You may have noticed that at the bottom of the reels there is a meter relating to each of the four characters of the Vikings Go Berzerk team? Every time you make a winning combination containing one of those characters it will fill the meter up a little further. Once the meter is full you will enter berzerk mode for that particular Viking and be awarded 7 bonus spins.
Vikings Go Berzerk is a well-executed game and Yggdrasil Gaming have worked wonders with the theme. Although the features seem complicated, they are actually really simple and once you begin to play you will soon get the hang of them. The game is designed well and has great graphics making the overall aesthetics fun and inviting. We cannot wait to see what comes next for this plucky band of Vikings, can you?
